When a family is displaced or forced to flee their country, it has a particularly devastating impact on the children. The youngest are left confused and frightened by their experiences and the oldest are forced to grow up much too fast. As such, it is increasingly important to provide psychosocial support to children who may have internalised these difficulties and who may be suffering as a result.

Al Madad Foundation's tailored Art Therapy programmes work to address the emotional scars inflicted by what children have seen and experienced, allowing them to express what they will not, or simply don’t have the words, to say.  

The sessions also include child protection awareness training against abuse and domestic violence. These are provided by qualified professionals both at the Children's Learning Centre and in the child’s home environment to maximise their effectiveness.
